We head back to the Facebook page of Prime 1 Studios for a new look at their latest product in the Transformers movieverse line: MMTFM-15 Barricade, in his first incarnation from 2007 (not the bulkier The Last Knight one)! Check out the description and images below, head here for the full album, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

MMTFM-15: BARRICADE (TRANSFORMERS 2007) "ARE YOU USERNAME: LADIESMAN217?" Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-15: Barricade from Transformers Film. Barricade is apparently a complicated robot. He believes that Starscream is vital in their search for Megatron and the AllSpark. In many ways, this makes him Starscream's closest ally in the naturally combative Decepticon ranks. Then again, it's been said that he likes to trick people into trusting him, just so he can see their reactions when they find out just how much of a bad idea it was. As such, he has disguised himself as an Earth police car in an attempt to fool the humans around him. Statue features: - Size approx. 30 inches tall [(H)64.5cm (W)50cm (D)43cm] - LED Light-up function on head - Limited quantity worldwide Retail Price: $1499 US Edition Size: 750 Prototype samples shown. Product details could be subjected to change without further notice.

I do love the even more cop-like version in TLK but damn I do still love his original look here too. That's a very cool figure for rich folk.

Damn, that Barricade will be HUGE! 30" tall, that's at least Fortmax sized!

You don't just have to be rich to own a collection of these. You must also live in a freakin' manor!

Crosshairs is an Autobot member and supporting character in the 2014 movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction and its sequel Transformers: The Last Knight.

He is a paratrooper who’s a mouthful of snark with a bad attitude. He only cares about one such person: himself. Crosshairs choose to be independent so that he can avoid danger, even if his allies are in danger.
Statue features:
- Size approximately 31 inches [H:76.4cm W:64cm D:53cm]

Ewww....thats a face only a mother can love. Im still dying to see whos actually buying these damn $1500 statues. Is this not the same fandom that wants to buy POTP Optimus as a "stand in" for MP-10? Is this not the same fandom that complains about a $50 import tax? Is this not the same fandom that left Walmart shelves clogged with Bayverse toys 5 times already? Who the hell spends $1500 and a non-transforming statue? Especially one of a character who barely did anything in the movie?

Yes, because every fandom is a singular entity, and if any two people within that fandom hold different opinions then it's hypocrisy and needs to be called out! Image

Bear in mind that if we take the production numbers for say, the Crosshairs statue, then if 1050 people - 1050 people in the entire world - decide to buy it for the asking price, then all the stock will be sold and Prime 1 Studio will be totally satisfied. On the other hand, if 1050 people the world over buy a copy of every single movie-related item, or purchase an MP-10, or don't complain about import taxes on the internet, nobody's ever going to notice the slightest difference.

Not that I'd ever buy these in all my years either, but don't confuse general consensus for unanimous opinion. Some people do want to buy these, and if they decide they want to spend a few thousand dollars on non-transforming statues, that's their prerogative! :D

Well im genuinely curious exactly what type of Transformers fans buy $1500 statues. My first thought might be movie buffs who also have statues of Predator, Iron Man, Terminator, etc. But then I think those guys probally wouldnt buy characters outside of Optimus Prime, Megatron, or Bumblebee. But Crosshairs? No way ! Thats a character only a hardcore Transformers fan would buy. So where are the hardcore Transformers fans that snub MP to collect $1500 statues? Are you out there? (crickets chirping)

One thing I noticed about these statue threads on both here and TFW is that you never see anybody posting the usual comments such as "it will be mine" or "pre-ordered on sight" or the infamous "shut up and take my money" meme. Where are these uber-rich super fans of Transformers? They sure arent here or on TFW. What kind of hardcore fans buy $1500 statues but dont post on fan sites? Its mind boggling. I recall BBTS asking for a non refundable down payment to pre-order one of these things. Cant say that I blame them, but it leads me to believe these things are really made to order and the whole "limited run" is a lie to get you to believe the makers sell more than 15 or 20 of them. $1500 x 1000 = 1 and a half million. I dont believe they make that much off of one statue when Takara cant even get 3,000 people worldwide to pre-order Grand Maximus for $250.

That's also true, I've never seen anyone sharing their desire to buy these things. But there must be a fair few of them somewhere; I'll readily admit I don't know anything about the toy production process, but I have a hard time believing they'd make their money back on the whole production process if they only sold double-digit numbers.

I've got no idea where these mystery buyers are, but I'm sure they must exist since these statues just keep comin'. I think you might actually be on to something with the idea that they're being bought mostly by movie buffs and the like - it's quite possible that purveyors of high-end collectables who liked the Transformers characters as a child (for the G1 statues) or appreciate the live-action designs (for the movie statues) but don't care about the actual toys, would spring for at least one or two of these.

It seems weird, but it might explain why they tend not to show up on fan boards like these. Paradoxically, they may not be big enough Transformers fans to buy a bunch of cheap kids' toys or join messageboards to talk about the franchise, but they just might think fondly enough of the characters and/or designs to buy a $1500 statue or two, if they're that kind of collector already.

Another theory I have is these mystery statue collectors might all be living in Asia and dont read or speak any english. They might be rich guys that work for successful tech companies. The type of guys that live in Tokyo or Hong Kong high rise apartments. People that are not connected with any crowd except business friends and really hot Asian chicks. As much as "geeks" are associated with sci-fi franchises, when you spend that kind of money the girls will party with you lol.

Probably the same kind of fans who don't hesitate to buy those 1000$ MP-10 special repaints, AFA-graded sealed G1 Transformers, or Lucky Draws.

If they keep making those super expensive statues, it's because many people DO buy these things. They are just not vocal about it I guess.

On my end, I bought two statues in my lifetime.

A 200$ MTG Spirit Link statue (Instead of an Unlimited Mox Saphir at the time):
Image

And a 400$ Cutey Honey statue (Instead of a PS2 at the time):
Image

Their value kept going down and down and down. You can still buy both for like 1/4 of their original price, brand new and sealed.
Both end up having some fingers broken off due to mishandling/cats. So now, both are totally worthless. I just can't bring myself to throw them in the garbage.........

So, even though that Shockwave above look INCREDIBLE, I just can't bring myself to spend more than 100$ on a statue. Breakage risks are real and the long term value is iffy at best.

Prime 1 Studio, notable manufacturer of licensed Transformers statues, is back at it once more, this time sharing a teaser image on their Instagram: a close-up of a gray, prototype statue based on the Transformers franchise. While only the lower torso and upper legs of the statue are depicted, details appear to closely match Optimus Prime's powered-up-by-fallen-ally form seen in the climax of 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen film.

Variously dubbed "Jet Prime", "Jetfire Prime", "Jetfire Optimus" and other similar iterations by fans, this memorable configuration formed by Optimus Prime and a dismantled Jetfire has received a few toys over the years since the film's release, but lacks a high-end collectable quite like the ones Prime 1 Studio is known for. Once the statue is fully revealed you can bet we'll share the news, but for now, check out the current image below and on Prime 1 Studio's Instagram page.

Does the idea of a Jetfire Optimus statue appeal to you, or is it just too much ado for something with such a brief (albeit memorable) appearance? Let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums, and as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for your daily dose of Transformers news!

Sneak peek of the day.

Adult collectors who see statues as real display pieces worthy of purchase and toys as dumb children's playthings, who don't want to waste their time "playing" with childish things.

This sad mindset has been around for far longer than Transformers has existed.

I get what youre saying. But in my opinion that mindset doesnt seem to match the whole point of being a "Transformers" fan. I would totally agree with the "anti-toys" mindset if we were talking movie characters such as star wars, predator, super heroes, mortal kombat, gi-joe, etc. Those characters all make great statues without defeating the purpose of the franchise. But the whole lure behind the transformers franchise is that they can transform which pretty much keeps them stuck in the toy category. But thats a connection that runs deep in the fandom. I find it hard to believe a Transformers fan would hate toys since it kind of goes with the territory. If I was a Terminator fan, I would definitely want an Arnold statue over some dumb action figure. But with Transformers that logic just makes no sense. At least not to me. To me the fact that its a robot, automatically makes it a "toy" whether it transforms or not. It doesnt get away from being less "geeky" just because it doesnt transform. Its a freaking robot and anyone who is ashamed of collecting toys isnt going to have an easier time justifying their robot statue collection to other toy haters lol.

That's just it, though. This mindset applies to those hardcore adult collectors who regularly collect statues and display pieces, not Transformers fans who regularly collect Transformers toys.

Such people are those who collect these things for their being highly-detailed physical representations of pop culture. These aren't the kinds of people who want these primarily because they have an emotional attachment to the characters, but because they have a more superficial attachment to the movies and their mainstream-ness.

Transformers fans tend to have some inner-child emotional connection that compels them get invested in what is primarily a children's toy brand. The tangibility of changing a robot into another thing entirely is enticing to us Transformers fans as adults in the same way it was enticing to us as kids. But those who grew out of that feeling don't share the same tangible endearment of transforming a toy. They don't want to waste their time figuring out how to get a million-step MP from one mode to the other, they just want a pretty display piece to show off in their living room or wherever they put these things. They don't care as much about the mechanics and engineering and the feeling achievement that comes with mastering a complex transformation, they just want something solid and fancy to decorate their room(s) with.

The main demographic buying these aren't diehard Transformers fandom members who buy and play with toys, they're enthusiasts of pop culture statues who exist outside of the core Transformers fandom.

If you think that's a lot of money then here's what $4000 will get you:

I was actually thinking about that this weekend too. Who knows what happened. They probably saw the movie and realized Onslaught, whom they probably thought would be a big character and fan favorite since he shared a name with a G1 guy, only showed up, spoke a line, and was decapitated, and scrapped the statue since it would be utterly pointless

Sadly, that's probably what Happened. The Decepticons of the Last knight will probably sit high on the list of wasted potential for years to come. on the Upside, we got a Crowbar figure in the studio series, so a Dreadbot custom is entirely possible.

Along with the official images from Prime 1 Studio directly of their Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen highly articulated (and detailed) Jet Power Optimus Prime statue, we also have a first in-person image of the piece - as well as a first look at a Dark of the Moon Sentinel Prime too!

Twitter user Chohenken brings us both apparently also from Wonderfest 2018, currently still taking place in Japan, and we've mirrored them below for your viewing convenience. Check them out, and let us know what you make of these pricey, sizeable display pieces - all in the Energon Pub discussion forums on Seibertron.com!

These do show off those gorgeous designs beautifully even if 'just' statues.

In what they called their Sneak Peek of the Day, officially licensed Transformers statue makers Prime 1 Studio have showed off on Instagram the head sculpt for their upcoming Bumblebee figure - this time styled after the new battle mode, complete with battle mask, we've seen in trailers and will see in the Bumblebee Movie come December!

Check out the grey prototype below, with the visor / hive patterned eyes glowing with (sweet baby boy) blue below, and let us know what you think of the Buzz surrounding this new movie and its related merchandise in the Energon Pub discussion boards below!

A double whammy today from Prime 1 Studio, the officially licensed Transformers statue makers, as the Bumblebee Movie hype train has clearly left the Cybertron station - the next sculpt they're teasing on their Facebook page is none other than big bulky bad, possibly triple changing though we have no full confirmation yet, Blitzwing himself, as seen in most of the footage shown in trailers and clips so far from Paramount!

Check out the grey prototype, this time with red optics, below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards. Who is buying these statues after all?

So I guess blitzwing is relegated to a seeker and his design matches, and since dropkick and shatter are triple changers, maybe he's their triple changing leader?

Theories aside, I love the head design. It's like the "07 Movie G1 Seeker" head mixed with Kold War Scorpion. :-D

not sure this is the best place to post this, but i have to ask:
why did they make a character who looks dang-near spot-on to g1 starscream, then call him blitzwing? it's not like starscream had a consistent design over the last 10 years, with the movie, prime, RID, and hte cybertron games. why the change?

Shatter is rumored to be the lead Decepticon of this movie.

Thanks to the Prime 1 Studio Instagram page straight from Shanghai Comic Con, we have word that their latest statue has been revealed, and it is none other than the main character from the upcoming movie named after him: Bumblebee!

This new statue features movie Bumblebee in all his VW goodness, and includes his new rounder and more cuddly shape. The statue also comes with his newly redesigned arm blaster, and features a stand made out of what appears to be simulated broken concrete, broken pillars, a spare tire, and underneath, a nice metal stand with an Autobot symbol on it. Of note here is that this statue uses the door wings that the movie character himself does not have, though this is has been a consistent design in almost all of his toys in this form, so there's no real surprise there.

Check out the image of the new Prime 1 statue below, and let us know what you think of this guy in the comments section below!

I'm starting to hope that we might see the door wings in the final CG design. It would make sense that they would be there since the robot mode would look more complete with them.

A statue made to be as much 100% movie accurate as possible.

Still got screwed with the door-wings.

:lol: #-o :(

I wonder if the door wings will be retractable in the film, kinda like the battle mask?

I should have waited to buy a SS Bumblebee until after they push out a second series of them where the door wings fold onto the back.
